Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Pretty Petals DSP


Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Jane’s blog.

Here are the essentials:

  • I went to my often neglected pile of Designer Series Paper stacks...this one is Pretty Petals. 
  • I made a square card and an custom envelope to match from the In Colors Envelope Paper in Tip Top Taupe. I did some tone-on-tone stamping & masking with the line stamp from Tin of Cards and made an address window. :)
  • The greeting is from Tin of Cards and the background flower is from Botanical Blooms (stamped off once in Calypso Coral)
  • Embellishments....I like having my embellishments in threes so I used 3 Calypso Coral Candy Dots in the top left corner. 
  • Gasp - ribbon! I hardly ever use ribbon on my cards as I have a mental block with bows so I did a faux-bow...essentially a knot...with the Tip Top Taupe Lace Ribbon....it’s so pretty! 
  • The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches this week.  

Here are our colours for this week:
